What is soundcheck (formerly triple cycle theory)?

It's a web page centered on the northwest music scene as a whole. It's a site that links the members, bands, and labels together. It's not a site on "grunge fashion" or a rumor mill of Kurt Cobain murder theories and drug histories of members. It's also a non-profit page- we will never put banners for other companies in order to make a few bucks.

What's the point of this site?

The purpose of this site is to chronicle one of the cooler music scenes in the latter 20th century. There wasn't any site out there that did that, so we decided to do it ourselves.

What are you getting out of this?

Really, we're not getting anything out of this. This page has been more of a labor of love than anything else, we haven't received a dime for our work. Not that we're complaining though, through this page, we've learned even more about northwest music and met a lot of cool people out there.

How long have you worked on this site?

The actual concept of this site was thought up in February of '99. It wasn't started until about a month later, in March. We have put many hours each week in the time since.

What programs were used to create this site?

The site was originally designed with Microsoft Front Page. In April 2001, we started using the much better Macromedia Dreamweaver program. All pages now have been created with Dreamweaver 4. Any .gif or .jpeg files (excluding any band pictures or comics) were created with Adobe Photoshop.

Why don't you add/change/take out (fill-in)?

Maybe we will. We are constantly conjuring up ideas for new things for the site. If you have suggestions for this site, let us know.

Where did you find the information for all this?

We read Loser, watched Hype!, bought a lot of cds, exchanged e-mails with a lot of people who were involved in the scene, and talked with other nw music fans.

How do I submit to soundcheck?

By e-mailing us at cycletheory@hotmail.com. (We ask though, that you e-mail us in advance before sending attachments to your e-mail. many times we may just not even bother downloading it.)

Where can I find music to these bands?

Check a record store near you, even a chain like Best Buy or something. If they don't have what you're looking for in stock, have them special order it. Almost anything on an independent label can be purchased directly through the label. Check the labels section for contact info.

Where can I learn more about the northwest music scene?

There are a few resources that you can find more information about the northwest music scene. Some of them are essentials: Clark Humphrey's Loser, Charles Peterson's Screaming Life, Hype!. You can find out more about these in our sources page and all three of these items can be still be purchased (except Screaming Life). There are tons of web sites on the internet on different bands, check the connections page for some of those links.

Do you know (fill-in band name)?

Probably not.

How can I contact (fill-in band name)?

You can e-mail their official web pages, write to their fan clubs, or write to their labels. That's really all you can do. (Don't ask us for e-mail addresses please.)

Does (fill-in band member) do drugs?

This is exactly the type of question we don't want this page to answer. This site is about musicians and the music they made. We don't know anyone personally so how can we answer it? If this is the type of question you're interested in, I suggest you go to another page.

Where can I get a good deal on some longjohns and shorts?

You can't. According to the "New trends in fashion '92" spread in Vogue magazine, longjohns and shorts will set you back about $200. A new flannel will cost $85.

Come on... Can't you give me the address of (fill-in band member)?

No.
